“Anatomy of a Story”

Posted by stmarys_admin_account in Art, Artist in Residence, Exhibitions, News

Our Artist in Residence for April is illustrator Lisa Kurt.

Lisa works primarily with acrylics and mixed media on canvas or wood panels; her work integrates maps and other ephemera within her paintings. Through her work, she explores stories that involve people, animals, and creatures in mysterious settings, often incorporating nature and the unexpected. Her work entails traces of nostalgia, melancholy, and whimsical facets that allow a bit of mystery to remain. Lisa’s work focuses on themes surrounding childhood, nature, memory, stories, mythologies, allegory, and dreams.

Wonderful stories have been dreamed and painted during her residency.

Lisa’s solo show “Anatomy of a Story” opens on April 25th. She is showing the works created for her new book… we are not sure of it’s name yet 🙂
it may still be top secret …until tomorrow!
